Ataxia, there are sooooo many things I LOVE about it, I hardly know where to begin. I love that it effects EVERYTHING, from my gait/ balance, dexterity (writing, printing, fine motor skills), speech (slurred), swallowing, coughing constently/choking), vision (effects focus and vision, as its sometimes blurry). And I LOVE falling, especially when I hit my head, splitting it open and having 9 staples, hairline fractured my pelvis, and tore my meniscus in my knee and having to have surgery repair it, never mind all the bruises! And I LOVE dropping things all the time, as well as the lack of confidence I’ve acquired due to all the falls I’ve taken. And to think I use to be sooooo independent! Everytime I fall, it knocks my confidence down one more peg…,what fun! I use a quad cane and rollator, as I can hardly walk without them, will wonders ever cease?..,ha! And I l LOVE the tiredness almost as much as my stiff muscles! Ataxia is truly a blessing…,NOT…,lol!
